Great gardens don't just happen. They evolve over many years of thoughtful design, community relevance and prudent, financial investment. Conceived in 1989, Cape Fear Botanical Garden has achieved much in its 25 year history. 

The Garden encompasses 80 acres of pine and hardwood forest, and boasts meticulously preserved natural areas of the region's indigenous plants, trees and wildlife. The cultivated garden areas showcase more than 2,000 varieties of ornamental plants, and include the renowned Daylily, Camellia and Hosta gardens. The River Walk, Heritage Garden, Children's Garden and Butterfly Stroll provide unique educational experiences for young and old alike.

The impressive 33,000-square-foot, world-class Wyatt Visitors Pavilion Complex opened in April 2011 and was a milestone in elevating the Garden's capabilities to expand their programs and enhance their ability to serve visitors and the community alike.
